I disabled Google Toolbar - no luck
I also checked my firewall in Panda and that contains Cubase 7.0 & 7.5 with outbound permissions to access the internet.
Dave - good ideas but:
I initially installed 7.0 and then the 7.5 upgrade. Then I removed 7.0 (fool)
After seeing some tutorial videos for 7.0 I installed it again. I haven’t changed any preferences on this so that I can go through the tutorial videos, so I can’t see how any preference files may be corrupt.
There is a list of all the template/preference file locations in the Knowledgebase, but that’ll be a last ditch effort.
Let’s face it, the hub is a nicety you either like or dislike. I just don’t like to see it hanging there waiting to connect. It’s easier to add the links to favourites to be fair.
I have since seen another post about this somewhere - a quick search for hub will reveal it, so it is obviously an issue with other users.
I really don’t want to get into too deep technical issues as I’m becoming a bit of a Luddite as I get older so it’ll just have to be “one of those things” until a solution appears.
Not to worry folks
